Ὁ μὲν σός, Ἁπόστολε, σκόλοψ ὑπῆρχεν
Οὐ βακχεία αἵματος μαργῆρ κοιλίας
Δρυμὺ ὑποσφύζουσα ὀσφύιν μάλα,
Κινοῦσα τε βάλανον, σκορπίον ἄλλον
Ἀλλα τῶν ἐχθρῶν αἱ συνεχεῖς <σ>πιλάδες
Οὐ τῶν μόνον ἔξωθεν, μᾶλλον δ’ οἱ ἔσω.
Ἐμοὶ δὲ δεινῶς ἡ τῶν ἀφροδισίων
Μανία λυττᾷ τὴν καρδίαν, κινοῦσα
Ἆσθμα λιγυρὸν, κατακλῶσα τὰ μέλη
Βδέλλης δολίας αἰμοχαρεῖν ζητούσης·
Ἀλλὰ σαῖς εὐχαῖς στήριξον ἐν ἁγνείᾳ.
